18 Easy Math Master's Credits
#1
I've got an MA in English and PhD in Higher Education, but I'd like to also be certified to teach entry-level, basic math courses. I need 18 credit hours in math at the master's level to be able to do that. 

What's the quickest, cheapest way to get those credits? Any suggestions?

One way would be to look for graduate-level classes at Statistics.com. The more affordable and possibly faster way might be to go through WGU: https://www.wgu.edu/online-teaching-degr...ogram.html

One option is via Advancement Courses. They have a bunch of math credits that transcript with the prefix MATX and are potentially a part of the course of study at Concordia University at St. Paul. The part of the course of study is potentially important in terms of being accepted by whichever university your want to teach at. Also note that while it is listed as MAT credit, it actually transcipted for me as MATX. I should probably call them up to see if I can get it changed.

Make sure that MATX is good enough for your situation.

Fresno Pacific University has several math courses that focus on the history of math:

https://ce.fresno.edu/educator-courses/mat-912

There are at least four classes on that page that could fit what you want. Note that the web site states that these are continuing education graduate credits which may or may not meet your needs.

The Heritage Institute and Antioch University/Seattle has several classes that might work:

https://www.hol.edu/courses#filters=subject[Math & Science]

Valley City State University has a handful of math courses within the Ed2Go platform that can be purchased for grad. credit. This will almost certainly not be with a math prefix, but math is sometimes in enough demand that colleges will take it anyway.

https://www.vcsu.edu/academics/continuin...or-credit/

Vanguard University and College Credit Connection has a bunch of EDUC prefixed math courses at $279 for 3 credits.

https://www.collegecreditconnection.com/ccc/home.aspx

PBS Teacherline has these courses:

https://www.pbs.org/teacherline/catalog/browse/?sa=1

When I've done the calculation in the past, it was too expensive to do these courses. There is a fee to PBS and also a fee to the transcripting college. Maybe that has changed.

I have to post this one, too:

https://www.groupon.com/deals/n-eneb-usa...l-degree-1

https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...ht=groupon

This is the now legendary "Groupon University" "masters" program through ENEB and Universidad Isabel I in Spain. This forum and the sister forum have been experimenting with credit evaluations through this program. This is something like a professional, non-academic master's degree in Spain. There is a "Big Data" master's degree for $300. However, this is not considered an academic degree in Spain, but a professional master's. There has been quite a bit of discussion of whether this is a graduate/undergraduate degree or the requisite credits are graduate or undergraduate. You might want to do this at some point, although there would be an additional question about whether big data is math.

BTW, here is the best faculty certification parameters guide that I have seen. This is from a college in Florida, so it falls under SACSCOC accreditation. I would think that these parameters would be similar in other regions:

This is the now legendary "Groupon University" "masters" program through ENEB and Universidad Isabel I in Spain.  This forum and the sister forum have been experimenting with credit evaluations through this program.  This is something like a professional, non-academic master's degree in Spain.  There is a "Big Data" master's degree for $300.  However, this is not considered an academic degree in Spain, but a professional master's.  There has been quite a bit of discussion of whether this is a graduate/undergraduate degree or the requisite credits are graduate or undergraduate.  You might want to do this at some point, although there would be an additional question about whether big data is math.

It's not secret that I'm potentially a fan of the ENEB programs for some purposes, but not this one. Big data is not math, and foreign transcript evaluations are not something you want to have to ask schools to deal with when they're trying to quickly hire an adjunct instructor. (Even if this program were positively evaluated for this purposes, which I doubt.)

This is really brilliant. I read your message and immediately spent 15 minutes researching this, and I think it would work!

Oh, wow! This is incredible! I have so much reading to do on this, but I really like it already.

Thank you, everyone! This has been most illuminating and helpful. I'll try to keep you posted on what route I choose.
